The Oilers didn't exactly have all-star goaltending either, so pretty comparable IMO.
K Let's swap goalies then, Dubnyk for Crawford.
Fact of the matter is, Crawford was part of the problem early on, he had stretches of good play at the end when he decided just to play deep in his net but he came out a lot at the beginning of the year and got beat often. I wouldn't expect you to know that but Crawford was part of the problem last year. The goaltending situation got so bad that we started Ray Emery consistently in stretches.
I don't see why saying, no this trade would not be good for the Blackhawks irks Oilers fans. Danault is what the Hawks need, Marincin wouldn't feel a need for the Blackhawks. That's all that's been said..
Leddy has been on and off the ice with injuries at Rockford but has looked solid. So has Clendening. The Hawks have several #3/4 Dmen in their system and that's what they need...
Keep in mind that Leddy and Hjalmarsson are < 28 and Olsen is there to use in a pinch. The Hawks did a nice job acquiring Rozsival for their 3rd pairing, Brookbank can be used in a pinch....
That's IF we even have hockey this year though.
